George Santos has a new gig just days after being expelled from the U.S. House of Representatives — for a pretty penny, he'll film a video for you or a friend.

Santos is the latest celebrity to join the video-sharing platform Cameo, which allows users to pay for a videotaped message. For $200, users can order a video in which Santos offers a birthday or holiday greeting, with other options for him to spread gossip or roast the beneficiary.

The Cameo page describes Santos as "Former congressional 'Icon'! 💅🏼" and "The Expelled member of Congress from New York City."

So far, four videos have been posted to the page, with the average video length clocking in at 46 seconds.

In one, Santos offers a family holiday wishes while poking fun at his recent controversy, saying, "Please spend some money on yourself on gifts this year. It could be anything, from Botox to luxury goods of any kind, like a trip to Hermès, makeup from Sephora or a subscription to OnlyFans." He ends the video by blowing a kiss to the camera.

The video makes reference to a recent report by a House Ethics Committee, which alleged that the now former congressman knowingly committed fraud and used campaign funds for his own personal purposes, allegedly including at luxury retailers like Hermès and Sephora and on Botox and OnlyFans subscriptions.

In other videos, Santos tells a Cameo user, "Botox keeps you young, fillers keep you plump," adding: "Haters are gonna hate. And if you have haters, that means you're doing something right."

House Ethics revealed last month that the subcommittee investigating Santos "unanimously concluded that there was substantial evidence" that he: "knowingly caused his campaign committee to file false or incomplete reports with the Federal Election Commission; used campaign funds for personal purposes; engaged in fraudulent conduct ... and engaged in knowing and willful violations of the Ethics in Government Act as it relates to his Financial Disclosure (FD) Statements filed with the House."

Last Friday, in a 311-114 vote, the first-term Republican became only the sixth of more than 11,000 U.S. representatives in history to be ousted from Congress' lower chamber, following the release of the report.

The report was released amid an ongoing criminal investigation into Santos, with a 23-count federal indictment earlier this year handing down a variety of theft and fraud charges involving his congressional campaign. (Santos pleaded not guilty to each of the criminal charges and has not yet gone to trial.)

The House Ethics Committee said it had evidence of "additional uncharged and unlawful conduct" by the Republican, which it would recommend referring to the Department of Justice.

In the wake of Santos' expulsion, New York Gov. Kathy Hochul is tasked with scheduling a special election to fill his seat. Hochul recently said that she would be "happy" to see him leave Congress, and would call for a special election to be held within 70 to 80 days of him vacating.
